R&D Laboratories

In June 2010, Our R&D Center was established as a “center of excellence for advanced medical innovation” with the support of “Subsidy for Industrial Technical Research and Development Facilities and Equipments” from the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry.

This center is equipped with the most-advanced analysis equipment and test systems for carrying out various activities on the subject of biomaterials, oncology, manufacturing technologies and clinical research.

It is used not only for innovative R&D, but also for the development of human resources via activities from basic research to surgical training for surgeons.

Operation Lab.

A practical training environment is realized in the operating room, and a leading edge surgical assistance system is applied from the computer/robot techniques.

CT Scanner Lab.

Data of each affected bone frame are acquired from medical images of CT.
Personal implant designs and advanced surgical operations are promoted for each affected bone frame.

Scanning Electron Microscope Lab.

Elemental compositions, inner structures, and surface morphologies of cells and materials are evaluated from various directions.
Fundamental researches of biomaterials are promoted.

3D Coordinate Measuring Lab.

To produce joint prosthesis with the highest processing accuracy, an accuracy of the curved surface shape and the contour shape are analyzed in a super-high level.

Simulator Lab.

A wear resistance and a durability of joint prosthesis are evaluated under the simulated in vivo environment to develop a long-life joint prosthesis.

Electron Beam Metal Molding Lab.

Free-form implants and porous components are produced directly from 3D CAD data.
Ti-15Zr-4Nb-4Ta alloy implants with high biocompatibility can be created

Water Jet Polishing Lab.

An abrasion on a bearing surface can be reduced by water jet polishing technology in a nanometer-scale.
Various implants can be polished by making use of fluidity and continuity of water.

Resin Forming Lab.

Complex biological models can be created from medical images.
Faithful models to the human bodies’hardness can be created by combining hard and flexible resins.

Image Processing Lab.

3D bone models are created by using the medical images such as CT/MRI.
The process encourages the preoperative planning and the designing of the personalized joint prosthesis.

Mechanical & Wear Lab.

Mechanical strengths and fatigue properties of materials are evaluated to ensure the safety of products.
Fatigue wearing characteristics are evaluated by simulating the motion in vivo environment.

Analytical Lab.

Every material (solids, liquids and gases) is evaluated on the atomic and molecular levels.
The innovative advanced joint prosthesis are developed from a leading-edge chemical approach.

Cellular Genetics Lab.

A biocompatibility of biomaterials is evaluated by using various kinds of biochemical techniques.
Newdiagnostic approaches for bone tumor and regeneration of medicines for cartilages, bones, and ligaments are developed.
